Puffin Web Browser
Puffin Web Browser is the premium version in the Puffin web browser family.
Puffin Web Browser is a wicked fast web browser. With the help of cloud servers, Puffin Web Browser brings the desktop web browsing experience to tablets and smartphones. It renders the full versions of web pages quickly and reliably. It also supports Flash with excellent performance on iPads and iPhones.
Puffin Web Browser (version 1.0 as a paid app) was first launched in December 2010, and Puffin Web Browser Free (version 2.0 as a free app) was first launched in December 2011. Version 1.0 was a good proof-of-concept and version 2.0 is a major algorithm breakthrough. The new Puffin is super-fast in loading, panning, and zooming of web pages.
By June 2012, 1.5M Puffins were downloaded, with 800K for the paid version. Puffin is widely accepted globally and ranked as #1 paid iPad Utility in more than 10 countries. According to Apple’s App Store Rewind, Puffin was ranked #2 among all Japan’s paid iPad apps in 2011, outselling Angry Bird HD.
